New pictures have shown the Maidenhead Waterways project continuing to take shape.
The latest snap, from estate agent Matthew Wilkinson who takes aerial photos, shows the scheme from over Town Moor, near the northernmost point of the current phase – the town centre ‘ring’, made up of York Stream and Moor Cut.
The progress of work can be seen, heading south to the A4 at Saint-Cloud Way and then on to the High Street with Hines Meadow car park on the right. Also visible is Shanly Homes’ Chapel Arches project on the southern side of the High Street, which is expected to provide 242 homes, as well as retail, restaurant and office space when it is completed.
The construction of a temporary dam near Blackamoor Lane in February 2015 allowed excavations to begin on York Stream, which are expected to be completed sometime next year.
Once finished work is then due to start on a weir where York Stream meets Moor Cut near Stafferton Way which will raise the water level to allow boats into the town centre.
